I love to make unusual flavoured cakes even though I only get to enjoy a slither due to watching my weight:p

I curenly have the folowing in the oven...

Tangy Marmalade Cake

225g (8oz) self-raising flour
2.5ml (½ level tsp) bicarbonate of soda
2.5ml (½ level tsp) baking powder
150g (5oz) Golden Syrup/maple syrup
150g (5oz) margerine
45ml (3tbsp)soya milk
225g (8oz) coarse-cut orange marmalade
2 portions of egg replacer
125g toffutti cream cheese style

1. Grease and fully line a cake tin.

2. Sieve the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl. Weigh the syrup,margerine, milk and 175g (6oz) marmalade into a saucepan, heat gently, stirring until melted.

3. Make a well in the centre of the flour, add the egg replacer and warm marmalade mixture. Beat until smooth then pour into the tin.

4. Bake in the middle of a preheated oven at 150ºC (300ºF) mark 2 for about 35 minutes (cover top with greaseproof after 25 minutes if cake is browning too quickly), until golden and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

5. Beat together the cream cheese and remaining marmalade and spread over the top of the cooled cake.

Sounds good. I wonder if it would work for other jams?
